Hi Florian,

No, but each subtree can contain an :ARCHIVE: property that will help
you come close to this.

For example:

* A
  :ARCHIVE: basement_archive::* A

** AA
** AB
** AC

then C-c $ on AA AB and AC will archive them under the * A subtree
of the basement_archive file.

The reasoning here is that the user wants to customize
`org-archive-default-command' and still use C-c C-x C-a to archive.
It would not be practical to force him create new keybindings.
